    While at the pacage store picking out this weeks wine and beer....I stubled upon a drink that looked decent, so I snagged a 6 pack...just for the hell of it. Forgot all about it for 2 days, and finally when the beer and wine were gone, I opened one...and I'm addicted. Captain Morgan's Parrot Bay Mojito...is this years new Airjockie's drink. Damn shit is so fucking drinkable, it makes Corona taste like crappy coors.....

    When I was in Florida, it was a popular drink at most bars, so I thought I'd try it....and...well...I like it. When I get my bar set up, I'll have it as one of my drinks;)

    The hardest part about drinking a Mojito is admitting that you like sucking dick. Haha just kidding. But I do rip on my boy Mat every time he drinks one.

    It may be another gay drink, but Twisted Teas go down like Snapples, and since they aren't carbonated - volume makes up for the lack of alcohol.

    Homemade mojitos, meaning made by beating the lime and mint together with sugar then adding the liquor, is amazing.


    amazing.

    Long Island Iced Tea FTW! Let's look at it from an economic standpoint. A shot at most bars is $3-$5. A Long Island contains about a shot of 5 different liquors (tequila, vodka, rum, triple sec, and what else?) for $6-$10. Even at $10 it's still pretty much a bargain. It's the most liquor for the money at any bar...

    God I miss Sardinia.

    Uno litro vino rosso. Pardone, quanto costo senior?
    Uno Euro.
    Ah, belissimo!!! Due litro para favore. :p

    Quickly translated that means a euro a litre, how sweet it is...

    Ah the good old days.

    I swear when I die I will look up and laugh knowing that Italy took at least a couple weeks off my life.

    :D

    Give me wine, beer, and cheese please, mohito is more like a snack, not an evening outing drink. Good, just not a long hauler.

    My best drinking buddy in Iceland, Thrustur Villberugson, once said:

    He is a wise man.

    You are hard pressed these days to find a bar that actually makes a LIT from scratch. Most use the crappy bar mixes and add a splash of coke to color. So far the best LIT I have had is at the Red Shed in UW-Madison's campus. They make it in a mason jar and I have only ever be able to drink two of them without being really messed up.

    Interesting. On the contrary I have never seen anyone make a Long Island from a mix, and I always watch to see how much of each liquor they put in it. I like it tequila heavy. I know Applebee's, TGIFriday's, Damon's, Bahama Breeze, Ruby Tuesday, and every local bar I've been to, have all made them from scratch. I think the only place I've ever had a watered down shit Long Island was at a casino (free) and a strip club (crowd control)...But either way, that mason jar sounds sick. I would love to go drink there.

    When i was in school this girl i knew took the Coke out of the LIT and added some other kind of booze. Made it a redish color and she called it a greatful dead. She also made her own Kaluha out of vodka, coffee and chocolate.

    She was (is?) a great woman...

    re: the grateful dead, the pink/redish alcohol is chambord, so essentially the long island iced tea becomes a grateful dead and is made with all alcoholic based ingredients.

    Make the mojito yourself. Then you can load that shit with rum, sugar, fresh lime, and fresh mint. . . . . and a splash of carbonated water.
